Event Details

Master Gardener Mary Ann Van Berlo follows the “it’s-hardy-until-I-kill -it-three times philosophy” when it comes to plant selection. She has discovered that the right soil type and micro-climates can help you push the plant hardiness zone limits. Luckily, plants can’t read their tags and don’t know they aren’t supposed to grow here.

COVID-19 Arrangements

In line with the Firehall’s virtual-programming approach, Garden Club meetings will be held, at least until the end of the year, virtually using the Zoom application. Members should register either for the season or on a meeting-by-meeting basis with the Firehall’s online registration process to receive the Zoom meeting coordinates. Registration for tours will be directly with the tour organizer. Mask-use and appropriate physical distancing during tours must be observed.

Meeting Fees:


2020—21 season: $25 for individuals; $40 for a family; drop-in fee—$7 per meeting. Fees for Gees Bees and Riverwood Gardens tours and the seasonal workshop are extra.
